Botswana Safari & Victoria Falls Safari – Client Feedback by Liselle Raath

Liselle put together a Botswana safari & Victoria Falls itinerary for her clients who wanted an authentic African safari. Her guests stayed at Tau Pan Camp in the Central Kalahari, Kwara Camp in the Okavango Delta , Kwando Lebala Camp in the Linyanti/Savuti area and the Ilala Lodge on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls.

Hi Liselle,

Thank you for your email.   I got home late last Tuesday night to very hot weather and a raging bush fire threat.   But that is all past now at least for the time being.

I had a wonderful time in Botswana!!!   I was delighted with your choices of the three camps,  all so different and so enjoyable in their own way.   At Tau Pan I was the only guest which was great and I had some fascinating chats with Vasco, the guide, and the camp managers.   I have never seen the Kalahari so green.  It was simply beautiful.   The best game viewing was undoubtedly Labala, where I saw plenty of lion, including a large male roaring beside the jeep and a leopard that we tracked all day, and of course elephant.     A male and female hippo had a fight just behind the tent one night and the male killed the female’s baby, which as you can imagine, enraged her.    I also saw a mongoose fighting with a python and shortly thereafter another mongoose fighting with a black mamba.     I also saw the wild dogs three or four times during my stay.    Altogether I was very lucky.  Saw cape buffalo at Kwarra, so next time I will have to go to Chiefs Island to see rhino.

Three days was exactly the right amount of time in each camp, and I really enjoyed the variety of activities available.   All the camp staff were very welcoming. I was very happy at Ilala Lodge and felt it was a great choice.    Very convenent for everything!!

I will certainly be in touch with you next time, although at this stage I have no idea when that will be.

Thank you again for all your help!!!
